Get To Know Joel And Why He Said Yes To Being A Model
How did you get roped into doing this, and what was your first thought when asked?
My best friend Tyler Norman did this 2 years ago, and If he can be a model, then anyone can be! =). My first thought was how to raise more money than he did!
What made you say yes?
Missy Koke of course! I also really love what the BGCEV does for our community. There have been so many great people involved over the years it made it an easy decision.
What is your official job title?
Director of Sales
How would you describe your job to your mother?
I work with an awesome team of people that bring custom apparel and merchandise from concept to life.
All families are unique, tell us about yours...
My poor mom is outnumbered by my Dad, Two Brothers and I. My parents are amazing cooks, and we love to get together for awesome meals. My brothers and are are probably a little too competitive, but usually we can leave the competition on the field/court/course.
Tell us about your personal passions, talents, and/or hobbies.
I have too many hobbies. Golf, Tennis, Basketball, Hiking, Skiing, Poker, Reading, Movies, and helping anyone in need.
What is something that you swore you would never do as a parent before you had kids that you do now?
No Kids, but I do like dancing with my Niece.
What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
I am celebrating 15 years with McKenzie SewOn in May.
Who inspired you when you were growing up?
My Brother, My favorite character in a fantasy series of books, and Jesus Christ. My older brother set a great example for me growing up, and drove me to be a better person and athlete. I hated reading until i was a freshmen in high school and I found a series of books that I fell in love with. The main character overcame crazy adversity, and it inspired me to always see my problems as opportunities to overcome instead of road blocks.
If you could go back and talk to your 12-year-old self, what would you say?
Be brave enough to do what you think is right, and not care about what other people think you should do.
